Minutes. It took minutes for the first fight of the joint practice between the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Commanders to break on Tuesday morning at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills.
Your contenders: WR Tylan Wallace for the Flock, CB Emmanuel Forbes Jr. for the Commies.
Your winner: well, you better watch and be the judge. (h/t @TheDailyRaven for sharing the clip first!)
If you feel a bit lost, the context of this fight is to be found in Maryland where the Ravens and the Commanders scheduled a couple of joint practices ahead of their preseason Week 2 matchup next Monday.
The Ravens won their 24th consecutive preseason game last Saturday after defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 20-19 thanks to an interception on a late 2-point attempt by the visitors that sealed the deal for Baltimore.
Baltimore offered their training facilities to the Washington Commanders, but they seemingly didn't like them so much or felt clearly overwhelmed by the superpowered offense of the Ravens, so they ended up getting a bit antsy and throwing some punches. Shees...
The Ravens will play the Commanders on the road for their second preseason game of August before facing Tampa Bay also away from Baltimore on Aug. 26 before calling it a (training camp) day and pack their bags to get ready for their regular-season kick-off, scheduled for Sunday, Sep. 10, as they'll host the mediocre Houston Texans at M&T Bank Stadium.
But that's going too much ahead of ourselves, folks. Just for starters and knowing what has happened on Tuesday in the first joint practice between Commanders and Ravens, you better be watching tomorrow as the second meeting between both squads will be taking place on the same venue at the same time (9.30 a.m. ET) with rising temperatures and a background already there.
